Clergy of Artemicia
The Clergy of Artemicia consists of a bunch of worshippers of Artemicia, the Goddess of Healing. The majority of them are currently operating in the city of Vanna in the Sultanate of Karaganda. After the Grand Alliance deposed high cleric Adela al-Saif, the clergy is moving towards supporting the Crimson Coalition in hopes of restoring its former power.
Armor and Emblems
The clerics wear white robes with a mix of blue and gold. Their colours symbolize beauty (white), the sky (blue) and the sun (gold) which are representations of the gods as well as the colours of the Sultanate of Karaganda.
The flag is an all-seeing eye with yellow eyelids in a blue pyramid surrounded by yellow borders on a field of white. This image symbolizes the eternal eye of Artemicia which watches over her followers and shows the holy trinity of the three primary colours (white, blue, gold) with a mix of black to represent death which faces anyone who dares to oppose the clergy.
The clerics of Artemicia are adept at healing and poisoning due to their incredible knowledge of anatomy and spell structure. They are also vain and want to look as good as possible, but they are more than willing to get themselves dirty fighting for a good cause. They see the world in need of purging and think that only their goddess is worthy enough to inherit the earth.
The Clergy of Artemicia has existed since the War of the Andain but they've hardly ever played a major role in world politics so they often observed things from afar while working for various factions whenever it suited their needs.
They took a more aggressive stance once they gained a foothold on the Sultanate of Karaganda in the Third Age of tGA. Once their high cleric Adela al-Saif became the Sultana of Vanna, the clergy quickly became a force to be reckoned with as it was backed by a race of skilled warriors who feared the clergy's magic.
However, after the insurrection led by Khalid al-Saif deposed Adela, the clergy had already been integrated so tightly into the warrior society of the sultanate that many clerics began working for Khalid. However, once word spread that Adela had escaped from prison and had joined the Crimson Coalition, many clerics in the sultanate began reconsidering their position in the world and whether to support Khalid or Adela.
For the time being the other pockets of the clergy around Libaterra aren't as strong as in Vanna but still powerful enough to deal with wandering marauders. With Adela working for the Crimson Coalition, it's inevitable that the majority of the clergy starts supporting the Coalition with her in hopes of promoting Artemicia's agenda.
The clergy had a considerable following in the Sultanate of Karaganda until the insurrection led by Khalid al-Saif put an end to their reign of terror. Many other pockets of the clergy exist around Libaterra but haven't become aware of recent developments in Vanna yet. Their agenda is similar to that of the Crimson Coalition, though, so it's only a matter of time before the majority of the clergy start supporting the Coalition in full.
The clergy has close ties to the Clergy of Nergal and Clergy of Mardük but nevertheless promote their own agenda with the guidance of Artemicia. They've been hostile to the Grand Alliance not only because the Alliance opposes Artemicia's father Nergal but because the Alliance dared to usurp power in Vanna from high cleric Adela.
